The Importance of Good Photography in Property Marketing

In today's digital age, a  property search often starts online. And with the average time someone spends on a Rightmove listing being just 1.7 seconds, your property must stand out from the rest. At this first stage, the quality of your photography is key to grabbing the attention of potential buyers.

Good photography can bring a property to life and inspire someone to make it their home. That's why we believe in providing our clients with creative, beautiful, and inspiring images. Our photographers are some of the best in the industry and their unique styles set them apart from the competition.

If you're looking to sell your property, it's essential to prepare it properly for photography to ensure it appeals to the broadest possible audience. Here are some valuable tips on how to prepare your property for photography to make it stand out:

  • Remove any unnecessary items, such as laundry baskets, fans, heaters, and bins
  • Clear surfaces of clothes, shoes, medication, and general clutter
  • Clean and declutter bedside tables
  • Turn on bedside lamps
